WATSONVILLE — Children gasped and called out excitedly as the Santa Cruz Symphony played the first notes of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 at the Henry J. Mello Center on Tuesday morning.
So much of music is inspired by other forms of art. Glinka’s opera, Ruslan and Ludmila, is based on a poem by Russia’s greatest poet Alexander Pushkin. The story is an epic fairy tale about the abduction of Ludmila, the daughter of Prince Vladimir of Kiev, by the evil dwarf wizard Chernomor, and the attempt by the brave knight Ruslan to find and rescue her.
We are thrilled to present the concerts for the upcoming 2018-19 Season! Subscription tickets are now on sale, but newcomers will not be seated until after the renewal period ends on June 1, 2018.
